How will Wolves react to Morgan Gibbs-White breaking social distancing rules?
Last week, 20-year-old Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White was outed as having broken social distancing rules.
Gibbs-White was filmed appearing at a party in London.
The England U21 international was spotted alongside Love Island contestants Georgia Steel, 22, and Elma Pazar, 27.
For the record, the videos of Gibbs-White which originally appeared on Snapchat have since been deleted.
While some reports claimed that Wolves could fine Gibbs-White 60,000 pounds for his lockdown breach, it’s yet to be confirmed if that actually happened.
Moreover, in Wednesday’s edition of the Athletic’s podcast, The Molineux View, it was confirmed that neither Wolves nor Gibbs-White have made any public comment regarding the incident in question.
Reporter Tim Spiers also confirmed that Wolves are “very disappointed” with Gibbs-White, who has been at the club since he was 8.
It’s been reported that Gibbs-White spoke to Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo on Tuesday about his mistake.
However, Tim Spiers is also confident that Wolves won’t sack Gibbs-White over his error, for now. Tim Spiers said:
Gibbs-White must know that that he hasn’t got many chance with (Nuno). I think he will get another chance.
They won’t bomb him out because of this. But he has to show the right attitude in the coming weeks.

Bournemouth’s Jordon Ibe breaks social distancing rules to have a haircut
Back in 2016, Jordon Ibe left Liverpool to join Bournemouth in a 15 million pound deal.
However, Ibe has failed to impress for the Cherries as he’s been unable to lock down a first team place at the Vitality Stadium.
Now 24, Ibe is set to leave Bournemouth at the end of the season when his contract expires.
This week, Ibe has made headlines for the wrong reasons after he shared images on social media revealing he had a haircut in breach of the current social distancing rules.
Making matters worse, Ibe wore a gown with the slogan: “Breaking the Rules and Changing the Game”.
The Athletic have spoken to Bournemouth about Ibe’s action, and the club have issued the following statement:
We are aware of a social media post made by one of our players. We have launched an internal investigation, the outcome of which will remain confidential.
One can expect that Ibe will never play for Bournemouth again.
